NEARLY 95 YEARS ago, River Oaks Elementary was built on the corner of Kirby and San Felipe. Across the street, the very same year, a brick Colonial Revival-style home was built by the Russell Brown Company and purchased by Raymond and Connie Garrison.
Now a historical landmark, 3014 San Felipe Street has hit the market, listed by Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty for a cool $1.3 million. The original charm remains, but a more open floor plan and added square footage — bringing the property to more than 3,000 square feet — means this four-bedroom home feels up-to-date and ready for a family.
The kitchen and adjacent family room are warm and inviting, with built-in shelving and a wet bar. The primary bedroom is a nice size, with an attached marble-laden bathroom and three sets of French doors that overlook the pool in the backyard. Also outside there's a two-story guest house, complete with a kitchen and living room downstairs and a bedroom and bathroom above.
